Energy

A quiet anxiety

creeps in and

invades every

cell of my body.

I keep my face

placid,

projecting

nothing.

I can't let

those around

me, see me

as I fall

and fade

away from

who I am.

It's building,

the fear,

the doubt.

the uncontrollabe

urge to bolt,

to run, run

as fast

as I can

away from this

painful and

unhappy life.

I look frantically

for my release,

for my mind to

analyze the

irrational

beliefs

wrapped up in

my anxious

energy.

It is exhausting

and I know

unrealistic,

but my mind

keeps flashing

the images

of all my

failures,

their words

written across

the brick wall

that surrounds

my heart.

This anxiety

eats at me

Me too! I hate the pills they give me for anxiety,(ativan) because it just wipes me out physically and emotionally, which means I lose precious time from my life.

Silence....... and

take a while

let a smile

catch your face

hold your grace

Don't close the gate

This is not fate

But your life

So let in light

Beat the grey

today

your way

bold

not told

in a while

in your style

warmth will come

and its begun

a gentle peace

with soft release

let it run

through your head

and so its said

we are a long way dead

you and I

we touch the sky

Didn't know I had "anxiety" until my neuro asked me. I thought it was normal to be a worry wart. Thanks to my Buddhist practice I was a happier worry wart. PD forced me to face the anxiety and deal with it . i didn't like the effect of Xanax either. Made me NOT feel. Now i'm off it 2 months and I love, cry, almost like a "normal' person. :D
